Fernandinho, a player who can be described as the ultimate cog in the wheel on basis of his performances for Manchester City, is the kind of footballer that every club wished they had.

The tireless defensive midfielder, can be seen continuously running up and down the pitch whenever Guardiola's side are in action and is the midfield anchor around whom City’s attackers can dance around and unleash their potent strikes in the final third.

The 33-year-old Brazilian has been so important for the Sky Blues that when he was out injured back in December last year, City suffered back-to-back shock defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester City in the first two Premier League games team played in his absence.

Having joined City in 2013 from Shakhtar Donetsk, he has gradually emerged as the quintessential modern-day midfielder, who has excellent reading ability of the game and knows exactly when to push forward and pull back.

The fact that Guardiola is still struggling to find a viable player to provide backup for him and eventually replace him, proves that he is one of a kind footballer who has carved a place for himself in the league.

And when City visit their neighbors this week, it won't be surprising if he proves to be the game-changer for the reigning champions.
